But with all the problems popping up about the 840 series having the slow down bug, and the firmware issues people are having with the 850 series it scared me. I have a Crucial M500 but I was not all that impressed with reviews on the new Crucial MX & BX series. The Sandisk SSD’s sounded like a good option but I decided to go with the Mushkin Reactor.
Now that I have the machine all finished I have been able to test the Reactor SSD out.
EXCELLENT, once I made the normal SSD tweaks to Windows 7 like turning off the Search service and tweaks to disable PreFetching and Superfetch the Mushkin Reactor is pulling between 530-545 meg reads and 435-465 writes depending on the benchmark program you use.
Mushkin’s Reactor is priced very nice for a 1 TB drive, the controller is older but its solid. Note there is no software for the Reactor, Samsung has their Magician and Intel has their optimizer tool but Mushkin has nothing so you will have to tweak your OS manually to get the most out of it.
I guess the best way to describe the Reactor is that it’s not a flashy drive that has big marketing behind it, in fact it comes in a plain plastic clamshell with a Mushkin paper inlay. The drive uses tried and tested components that are not the absolute fastest thing out there but more than fast enough to be in the same class as the top end drives but it’s cheaper and it just works.
This part is just for reference for those in the market to upgrade or just curious. This new machine is built around a Intel I7-4790k(not OC’d), MSI Z97 Gaming 7 motherboard ,MSI GTX 970 videocard ,Crucial Ballistix Sport 16GB DDR3 1600mhz. Testing the machine with some basic benchmarks shows that the new machine is almost 25% faster than my 4.4ghz overclocked 2600k I built in Dec 2011.
For my next machine that I build for myself I will seriously look at what Mushkin has on the market.
The Reactor is overall just a very good solid SSD that I will recommend to my friends.
I hope review\comment helps someone out there.
Mushkin doesn't have a lot of chittychatty support stuff on it's site - miss that a little. Doesn't come with cloning sw - but what mfrs include is seldom what I use, so - meh. The drive itself is MLC (2 bits per cell and a bit faster than TLC 3 bits per cell) - that and the price were incentive enough. Never gotten a bad Mushkin product and they came thru again with a speedy MLC ssd at a fine price. FreeTail seems to be fast and efficient and that is always nice. Met my expectations and listed speeds & MLC means roughly 2x the TLC life expectancy. Typical 'Mushky' - they put out without asking for a steak dinner and talking all evening about their cat/grandma/ex-boyfriends. I'm pleased at this point with my purchase.
1. Boots my laptop extremely fast. Went from 2 to 3 minutes to less than 30 seconds.
2. Does not generate heat like my WD 7200 RPM drive it replaced.
4. Had no issues whatsoever getting my laptop to recognize it or installing Windows 7 on it. Yep Windows 7. I have many programs that just won't run or won't run correctly on Windows 10.
5. Installing any programs or updates is now extremely fast.
6. A bit cheaper than it's equivalent competitors.
7. It's uses MLC versus TLC (MLC is spec'd to allow more writes per cell hence longer life expectancy). I can't afford SLC.
1. Higher price (almost 3x) when compared to an equivalent size HDD).
2. Longevity??? (and I know many people will disagree with me on this one hence the ???) Only time and use will tell how long this lasts.
3. Misconception that it will make your computer run blazing fast. Yes and no. It will boot faster and load programs faster but programs and just about everything else run off RAM and are handled by the CPU/GPU. Read/Writes from the SSD will be much faster than an HDD but your slow CPU will still be slow when doing just about anything else that does not require a read/write. It will not make your old Celeron based computer run like a Kaby Lake Core i7.
4. It does seem a tad slower after I installed all my programs, but this is normal as the drive fills up. But it's not enough to complain (not even a a little).
Why did I chose Mushkin over other manufacturers such as Crucial or Samsung? This was was on sale for almost $25 less. The specs where almost par with it's higher priced cousins. But most importantly this is an MLC drive. All the others are TLC drives, From everything I read SLC last longer than MLC (but very expensive) and MLC last longer than TLC. Longer meaning more writes per cell. Even though TLC drives are faster I traded the slight speed advantage for longevity.
Some computers (not all) need UEFI vs Legacy BIOS to be active in order to recognize an SSD drive. My Dell M6700 would not recognize the SSD unless I switched over to UEFI. Read your PC/Laptop guide before installing this unit. It was also recommended that I enable AHCI on my Dell, which I already had (might not apply to you).
Check if TRIM is active on your OS (supported from Windows 7 and newer).
Overall I am very very satisfied with this purchase. Now we'll see how long it lasts. I kept my old HDD just in case I have to do an emergency revival. I will update this post in the future.
